Topic: email addresses is not listed in address book
I am facing problem with address book. I configured address book in outlook 2007 with following steps
on account settings choose address book tabs
choose Internet directory service(LDAP)
insert the servername (for me, i set it to IP of the server)
checked this " this server requires me to logon"
Fill the username with --> firstname.lastname@example.org,ou=Users,domainName=testserver.com,o=domains,dc=testserver,dc=com, dont forget to insert user passwd
Click "More Settings"
Leave by default,
Choose "custom" and insert with --> ou=Users,domainName=testserver.com,o=domains,dc=testserver,dc=com
In compose window in TO bar when i type part of email id and press ctrl+K , it completes the email address.
But when i go to address book , it doesn't display list of all email addresses in ldap database. I have to type few characters and press enter and it displays all email addresses.
I googled and found that typing " . " just dot without dobule quote and press enter would give all the addresses and this works fine for thunderbird but not outlook.
I checked ldap log and found differences between when thunderbird queries and outlook queries
When outlook query, following log is seen.
Jan 27 14:27:52 homeserver slapd: conn=155 op=1 SRCH base="ou=Users,domainName=home.com,o=domains,dc=home,dc=com" scope=2 deref=3 filter="(&(|(mail=.*)(cn=.*)(sn=.*)(givenName=.*)(displayName=.*)))"
when thunderbird queries, following log is seen
Jan 27 14:28:37 homeserver slapd: conn=113 op=2 SRCH base="ou=Users,domainName=home.com,o=domains,dc=home,dc=com" scope=2 deref=0 filter="(|(mail=*.*)(cn=*.*)(givenName=*.*)(sn=*.*))"
when outlook queries ,the filter option is mail=.* cn=.* , that is why ldap is not giving any result .
It seems if we can make ldap accept query filter like this , i can fix it.
Do we have any idea how we can fix it.
